SOURCE: MISFIRING ON CYLINDER 1 VW POLO 1.4 3CYLINDER

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

SOURCE: brake lights stay on although the brake pedal is

You will probably find it is a problem with the switch on the brake pedal.
Get your self a cheap multi meter from an electronics store. Set it to meaure ohms. This is used to check if a connection is complete.

Take the wires off the switch on the brake pedal and test if the connection is open or closed. Push the pedal and check the connection again.

If the switch only had one wire then the negative connection is made to the body of the car. Put one probe of the volt against bare metal of the body somewhere and the other agains the terminal of the switch and test again.

This should tell you if the switch is broken. if the switch is good then you probably have a short circut somewhere between the brake lights and the switch. That is something has pinched or other wise broken the wire and it is touching metal of the car. You will have to follow the wires as best you can and look for damage.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: aftermarket stereo wiring harness does not fit oem

Theres a standard amongst most stereos, so if these colors apply, then you will be right,
Red is Ignition power
orange is direct power
Black is earth
blue is for phone
White is for electric arial
then there will be four coloured wires with matching color trace wires, these are the speaker wires.
Hope this gets you going, good luck.

this sounds like a thermostat fault, but also could be the sensor switch to the radiator but is more likely the thermostat, it should be located at the front top of engine, follow the top water hose to the engine and you will find the thermostat housing, also just a heads up, these had a problem when first made, according to the known fixes and problems with VW's the hoses corroded inside and started loosing water, this could be wise to get the system presure checked to...hope this helps

Hi
It may be cheaper to just fit a replacement stereo unit.
I cant see why a stamped serial number would be damaged on a stereo....it dont touch anything...unless its been deliberatly damaged.
Fit a new stereo..very easy and prob a better sound quality.

Is it thatcham immobiliser in VW golf s v 1.6 2001 y reg


thatcham alarms were only fitted by dealers as aftermarket items for 10%off insurance premiums discount although this discount was stopped soon after they found out that thatcham alarms were causing lots of trouble with cars being immobilised for no reason and found to be unfixable by VW dealers.....you only have the factory standard alarm,unless YOU have a certificate showing that one was fitted.(insurance companies ask this question so that if you have an accident and you said yes,they can kick your claim into touch.....believe me any excuse.....)

Hey there! I had the same problem just the other day and removed the radio from the car over night.

Turns out the radio may have got too cold or a little damp! Whereabouts is your car stored overnight? Could be the reason why!

Either that or one of the buttons could be stuck. Hope this helps

Alpine CDA-9847R. Stations reset when engine switched off


Hi. On the back of the ISO lead switch the red and the yellow. The VW constant positive (station memory) comes off a different pin to other cars. Therefore when you are switching your engine off you are switching the memory power.

How do i remove a door panel from a vw polo match 2001. I have the lock/unlock button to reposition back in its slot as it has been pushed into the door.


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
